You can help Heeley Development Trust by casting a vote for the park at the branch of Lloyds on Abbeydale Road, by SMS (text ‘VOTE RPH’ to 61119), by tweeting ‘#COMMFUND RPH’ or at

The Heeley Park has also been named as one of the three charities featured in the September Waitrose Community Matters scheme, who will each receive a share of £1,000.  The scheme sees customers issued with a green plastic token which can be placed in a charity box by the exit.  The more tokens placed in the Heeley Park box the larger the share of the donation.

All funding received will be re-invested to support the staging of free events at the park.
